    The idea that you gat something this size and detailed for $900 US is staggering.

    I have no idea where I am going to put the three pieces I ordered - Sauron - Khazad-dum Balrog - Berserker - with the massive footprint of each. But it is a problem I will solve before shipping.

    Same with me, I have Sauron and Aragorn on PO with probably the Balrog to follow. And right now I'm already running out of space

    Got my DX ordered!


    Super excited for this one! It's going to be fun finding out which combination of switch-out parts I like the best.

    I like the berserker but absolutely hate bases that over the top

    also I have no experience on prime 1 and their final quality

    the balrog I think is nice but don’t like light up stuff feels toyish to me

    ugh I wish sideshow also still made LOTR so we had more optoons

    I'm firmly with Elessar on this one.
    The only one of the Prime1 we have seen so far that I even considered getting, regardless of price, is the Balrog.

    But to all of you that like them, more polystone to you.

    / Best regards, Fredrik

    This is tempting even though it’s an exact copy of Sideshow

    i just wish they kept bases more simpler - the sword will also put the height at 38 inches

    i have yet to see a prime 1 production piece in people’s hand - how
    is the end quality product

    also do they hold up value compared to like Weta and sideshow sell.

    Ordered the Berserker . One of my absolute favorite characters from any of the films. The figure is amazing and a real bargain compared to other statues.

    My favourites are Sauron EX and Gandalf vs Balrog ex.

    Luckily this one and Aragorn didn't hit my nerve.

    This berserker is what gets me super sad for prime 1. When I first heard about prime 1 hitting lotr line with 1:4 I was so hyped. Big characters on good quality ( or so I tought )

    now seen these they tend to lean The way of base is half The statue ( not really a fan of this ) there is so much going on every base that they are super hard to display ( not mention size of The bases ) with anything else than one statue at a time and I aint friend of that style personally. More simply bases would do the job alot better and they would made less mistakes too ????

    What comes to theyr newest release of berserker its a near straigh copy of sideshows old statue. I dont know about y guys but I keep these things piece of art and stealing other companys work so boldly just make me abit sad. Hoped more originality and fresh looks on things instead we got punch of statues that are near The old line with just updated look :/ big big disapointment

    anyhow they are for sure good statues and I am glad for anyone whos getting em. I just dont feel much about em personally. The only good piece this far for me is balrog dia and it has it own problems. And wont be getting it before second hand sells hit The market as prime 1 shitty politic with ex raised The price so high in EU. Straight from prime 1 it cost me 2400 and from retailer 2200 so no thanks.

    Awesome statue!
    I also don't see the purpose of the "unmasked" portrait and the severed head is a little gross. So for me the Reg would be the way to go, at a good price point too

    Good thing the Sideshow 1/4 Premium Format version of this one is still out there, and uses mixed media.

    Really haven’t had too much of an issue with their releases until now. I’ll be honest and say for me this one is terrible. We never see these guys without their masks, they didn’t look like a work out fiend, the base is a bit much, and the severed head is a little tacky. So for me while I will be getting the Balrog and I’d love to get Aragorn this one I honestly wouldn’t even want a free copy to review.
